It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s right: Women’s History Month. At theSkimm, we’ll take any opportunity to celebrate awesome women. And this March, we’re doing it a little differently.
This past year has been historic, to say the least. And women are doing incredible things every day. They’re on the front lines of the pandemic; they’re doubling as school teachers; they’re writing the movies and books we’ll be talking about for years. (And honestly…we think it’s pretty incredible just to get through this at all.) So instead of waiting for 2040’s history books to honor them, we’re doing it alllll month long.
Introducing these small businesses that donate some proceeds to really important causes. We’ve got an aluminum-free deodorant that goes to breast cancer research, a daily moisturizer that supports gender equality, and more. Don’t miss out.
For when you need a pep talk from some VIPs. Shonda, Greta, and Gloria to the rescue.
Say 'hi' to a special season of our career pod, Skimm’d from the Couch. We’re talking to women who’ve accomplished historic things this past year. In the hot seat this week: NBC News Chief White House Correspondent, Kristen Welker. Queue it up, up, up.
If you want your puzzles, coffee table books or wine glasses to feature the women you admire most, you’ve come to the right place.
There’s no time like the present to conquer these dinners and desserts from icons like Julia Child, Edna Lewis, and Joyce Chen. Bon appétit.
She’s in your group texts, she’s on your Zooms, she’s DMing you the perfect meme as we speak. Now, it’s time to tell the world how much you appreciate her. We created a “video wall” where you can add a little tribute to the MVP in your life. Upload a short video here telling her why she rocks, and surprise her later. Cheers.
We’ve got indie favorites, iconic bops to sing in the shower, some songs mom will love (hi Adele), and jams that’ll make you miss the dance floor. Virtual karaoke starts now.
Like Girls Who Code, Dress for Success, and more. Do good, feel good.
A Hulu subscription gets you access to tons of movies and shows that celebrate women’s stories and were made by women. Check out some of our faves:
“The Great.” This hysterical, twisted satire back, back, backs it up to the 1700s, when Catherine the Great broke glass ceilings before it was cool. Talk about inspiring.
“The United States vs. Billie Holiday.” Calling all history buffs, music lovers, and crime fans. Meet this inspired-by-real-events drama written by Pulitzer winner Suzan-Lori Parks. It just dropped Friday, and feels v. relevant even though it takes place in the ‘40s. Don’t miss it.
“Pen15.” Grab your gel pens and get ready to laugh, cry, and cringe. This series breaks down what middle school in the early 2000s was actually like. Very funny. Almost too real.*

For Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating the women who broke barriers, changed the game, and continue to inspire us this month and beyond.
We’ve got an aluminum-free deodorant that donates to breast cancer research. And a daily moisturizer that supports gender equality. Do good, feel good.
We’re honoring trailblazers like Maya Angelou, RBG, and Dolly Parton. Who run the world?
